Don’t miss out on this hilarious interactive performance – The Swash-Line Secret! Join actor and comedian Monica Main for a rollicking adventure performance, where you get to become part of the story in this ripping yarn about kids having awesome adventures in Perth and Freo.

Step back to 1930s Australia, an era before television, when school meant chalk on blackboards and fun meant kids running barefoot in their playtime with cubby wars, bikes and games with friends… as long as they were back home by dinnertime!

Bring a grown-up and make sure you ask them what type of adventures they had when they were kids!

Afterwards, check out some olden day objects on display, play some old fashioned games and craft an olden days’ toy.

Programs are subject to availability. All children 12 years and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
